Reviewed by Steve Best

From three years ago comes this absolute gem from the awesomely talented guitarist cum singer/songwriter. Things get off to a spectacular start with the fabulous acapella "Eventide" (reprised at the album's end on acoustic guitar) - a truly breathtaking opener. Steve's acoustic guitar talents are never far from the surface, and he is joined by a fine array of support musicians including Chapman stick expert and label mate Fergus Marsh, along with Phil Keaggy who contributes some delicious electric guitar parts on a couple of selections - most notably on "Jesus My Glory". Steve draws on a range of lyrical inspirations, including ancient prayers and psalms, and throughout this is supported by wonderful arrangements and fine sensitive performances. In all, utterly wonderful.
